Seniors on British Rail, really?!

Yes! I'm still in shock about being the bearer of a Senior Rail Card, but John is taking it in his stride! Our adventure began today at Totnes, as we said goodbye to Devon and headed northeast to the Cotswolds.

We agree that travelling by train, relaxing in the quiet carriage, is infinitely better than battling with motorway traffic, or any traffic for that matter!

While in Devon we had some wonderful hikes in Dartmoor National Park and along the South-West Coast Trail, which practically runs past my mother's front door! Here are some pictures to whet your appetite, in case you ever consider a walking holiday in the south of England.

Slapton Sands, no actual sand at all, just shingle!

Beautiful Dartmoor is proof that wilderness can be found on this overcrowded island!

Love that second to last picture of John... stunningly beautiful and made me incredibly jealous!

Enjoy the Cotwolds... we were briefly there a few weeks ago, and loved particularly the area around Upper and Lower Slaughter. There's an amazing ice cream place on one of the trails.

John wants to know...... Is it he who is stunningly beautiful? If so, thank you!
